Real Madrid is the top team of the decade according to UEFA
Real Madrid has emerged from the UEFA standings as the top team of the decade and not unjustly, having won the European Championship four times since 2010.
With Zinedine Zidane on the bench, they have won three consecutive season finals in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and they have been in the semifinals four more times in the last 10 years.
It is worth noting, however, that he failed to qualify beyond the “16” phase in 2010 and 2019.
The second team, Bayern Munich is just 11 points behind Real Madrid.
The Bavarians have won one title in 2013, but have reached the final twice, where they have been defeated by Chelsea and Inter and have been eliminated twice in the quarter-finals.
The third team, Barcelona, has played one game less than the Germans, two less than the Madrillians and is just one point behind Bayern Munich.
The Blaugrana have won the 2011 and 2015 titles, competed in four semifinals and been eliminated four times in the “8” phase.
What about the other seven teams in the top 10
These three teams have stood out in the competition since 2010, with Juventus following their own numbers, counting 40 fewer games than Real Madrid, having been absent from the institution for two seasons (2010/11 and 2011/12). .
Juventus is continuously present as … Italy’s permanent champion with eight consecutive wins, twice in the final.
We have to get down to … half the table to find the first Premier League team and this is Manchester City. The ‘Citizens’ are nine points behind Paris Saint-Germain, with both teams not yet making it to the final.
Atletico Madrid follow in the footsteps of closing out the Spanish presence in the top ten, while Chelsea and Manchester United meet below, with the Londoners also winning one in 2012.
The Top-10 closes with a surprise team, Dinamo Zagreb.
Croatians have had the most participation in the institution in the decade (behind the Top-3) and have been absent only twice in the last decade.
In fact, Dynamo may not have managed to qualify for the group stage most of the time, but it is only two points less than the “Red Devils”.
Last but not least, Liverpool’s absence from the list is not surprising as they may have reached the final in 2018 and conquered it in 2019, but they were abscent all the previous years.
